MahjCon is committed to providing equal access to its participants with disabilities in accordance with State and Federal Law.
Volunteers may be required to discuss your reasonable accommodation with you in order to attempt to meet your needs. All seating is limited and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis so make plans to arrive early for events you would like to see.
We offer a variety of services to help you enjoy your experience at MahjCon, including:
- Conference schedule in PDF format so your device features can zoom areas of interest.
- American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters available upon request.
- Name badges with identifiers that denote seating requirements and information about medical conditions in case of emergency.
If you already purchased tickets and need to request accessibility accommodations, please fill out this form: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/M5BY5S5
Name badges that include identifiers will be provided at registration for accommodations. Qualification for services does not guarantee the availability of seating.
|Wheelchair for participants in wheelchairs or scooters.|
|End of Row for non-wheeled participants with mobility impairments.|
|Proximity (50 ft. to screen) for participants who need visual and lip-reading access.|
|Sightlines for participants who need access to the ASL interpreter.|
|PCA for participants with significant disabilities who require ongoing assistance with personal or medical care.|
|Medical for participants with a medical condition that an EMT should know about in case of emergency. It does not entitle you to any other services. Your medical condition will be handwritten on the back of your badge insert upon registration.|
The MahjCon Accessibility Services table will be in the event registration area.
We follow the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which specifies the number and arrangement required for accessible seating. We will do our best to make sure events are accessible to you, but that does not mean we can guarantee you a front-row seat or head-of-the-line privileges. If you are going to a popular event, you must get there extra early to get a good seat, just like everyone else. If you arrive late, or in some cases even on time for an event, you may not get the seat you would prefer, and in some cases, you may not be able to get in at all.
If you have difficulty walking long distances, we highly recommend that you consider renting an electric scooter. You can call Scootaround at 1-888-441-7575, email them at email@example.com, or contact them through their website at https://scootaround.com/en.
We are always seeking qualified ASL interpreters and those experienced in dealing with people who have disabilities. If you would like to volunteer on the Accessibility Services team, please email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
